Some Professional and Political Events in Canadian Neurosurgery

  • T.P. Morley (a1)

Abstract

The Hannah Institute for the History of Medicine and Science, with the Royal College’s Section on the History of Medicine, asked me for a contribution to the Annual Meeting (1984) in Montreal dealing with the history of Canadian neurosurgery. I soon discovered that the material available to me, from my own files and from colleagues who sent me information, was too extensive for a paper of the required length. I have therefore excluded from this article the balanced review of the scientific and clinical contributions of Canadians in neurosurgery that I had hoped to prepare. What remains is a collection of events and developments that have involved or interested me during my career.
